“This woman needs no introduction…the pioneer woman is sure to entertain you to the core…”

Ree Drummond is a food blogger turned book author turned TV personality. I came to know about her blog a couple of years ago through one of my foodie friends, since then I have been hooked. Not just for recipes but to know more about the country lifestyle and other amazing stories she writes about.

Using only simple and widely-available ingredients, I share my favorite, classic recipes from my website—along with a good crop of new dishes. I hope you enjoy it. It’s homespun, homemade, and very stream-of-consciousness. It’s me”.
